Pugh tops may­oral ri­vals in cam­paign cash

Baltimore Sun - - MARYLAND -

State Sen. Cather­ine E. Pugh, the Demo­cratic nom­i­nee for mayor, has nearly 100 times more cam­paign cash on hand than her gen­eral elec­tion ri­vals. Pugh has $280,670 in her cam­paign ac­count, ac­cord­ing to fi­nance fil­ings due Tues­day at the State Board of Elec­tions. Repub­li­can nom­i­nee Alan Walden has $2,983 on hand, ac­cord­ing to his lat­est fil­ing. Green Party can­di­date Joshua Har­ris in April filed an af­fi­davit stat­ing he did not plan to raise or spend more than $1,000 in the fil­ing pe­riod. Pugh’s cam­paign fil­ing shows she has been rais­ing money steadily since nar­rowly de­feat­ing for­mer Mayor Sheila Dixon in April’s Demo­cratic pri­mary elec­tion. Pugh re­ported rais­ing more than $1 mil­lion, in­clud­ing $6,000 from the Beatty De­vel­op­ment Group, which is build­ing the Har­bor Point project; $6,000 from Baltimore De­vel­op­ment Corp. Pres­i­dent Bill Cole; and $6,000 from the Bal­lard Spahr law firm, which rep­re­sents Un­der Ar­mour CEO Kevin Plank’s Port Cov­ing­ton de­vel­op­ment. Six mem­bers of the Pat­er­akis fam­ily, which de­vel­oped Har­bor East, con­trib­uted a to­tal of $36,000. Democrats out­num­ber Repub­li­cans in Baltimore nearly 10 to 1.
